It’s a nice sunny but cool day in North Iowa – the snow is gone and it might be a harvesting day – keep your fingers crossed. Send the good vibes for all the farmers in whatever state they may be in because we Americans need farmers.
Betty visited the farm yesterday and I think Telly was more excited to see her than Hazel. Betty decided she liked to carry a piece of pumpkin along with her to the garden where she and Telly found a pile of dirt to play king of the mountain!
Betty has really grown – 36 solid pounds! We love to have her visit where all the dogs can run free because Hazel doesn’t really care for this big puppy jumping on her head. That could be because Hazel weighs 12 lbs compared to Betty’s 36. Hahaha!
Remember that pinwheel baby quilt? I got it on the quilting machine last night. The shower is a mere 10 days away so today I need to bind it and get it in the washing machine.
Here’s another little tidbit – when cutting up shirts for fabric, save the cuffs and make sweet little pincushions – what a great gift for your quilting friends!
Do you think you need a tutorial for this?
And here’s the best news ever! I finally found the pattern sheet for the goat block! Here’s the original quilt called Louise and Friends.
FINALLY I can offer this block pattern to you for $3.00. So many people have requested it and all I had was the $10 pattern for the Goat Sampler. Since this is just a repeated block you won’t need anything more to create your own goat quilt! This block is made with templates so I am not able to post the sizes of each piece – you need the block drawing to make templates with 1/4″ seam allowances added. I hope this announcement reaches all of you that have asked for this pattern!
Sorry – I see this posted twice. I’ll just leave it.
And Live Thankfully is still available for $3.00.
Remember that no photos are available so you may want to copy these two examples. When ordering don’t forget to include a mailing label with you name and address. And now since we have two patterns available, specify which one you are ordering.
It’s a great day with the sun shining – I’m washing screens and putting them away for the winter and I hope to start washing windows before it gets too cold. Thanks so much for all the ads opening or closing by those of you who did it. We paid the bills last week – ha! And here’s hoping we can pay them this week, too.
Should we start the Bullseye Quilt along this week? Or are most of you overwhelmed with fall work? Let me know what you think – I can start any time!
